She said this is Clickbait. But I really did have a baby yesterday 17 years ago. And look at her now! Also, do you see that cake? I made part of it before work yesterday morning and finished the rest when I got home. She picked it from some website called Sally’s baking addiction and said, “only if it isn’t too complicated Mom.” It was certainly worth the effort that I got because of it.
That’s the reason I didn’t blog yesterday. So today is day one people. This day I became a mother. What a magical day that was! Truly it was.
And every day since has been magical! Not. Someone told me the other day that I made parenting look fun. Yay! I was so happy.
Then I thought about all the things that aren’t fun. And I pondered about the evidence that caused my friend’s conclusion.
Parenting is fun. But you have to make it fun a lot of times and I work hard at that. I truly enjoy my children but I also have to help them learn to be enjoyable to be around. A wise woman told me the other day that making any situation fun is a poor man’s therapy and the way to cope with the hard parts of life.
So Day 1 of the story of 30 days:
Make it fun….what ever it is.
P.S. Goodness! Look at her 17 year old face…she’s having fun.
